Away Resorts
Away Resorts on Koh Kood is the epitome of an island hideaway. The resort features spacious luxury bungalow villas, with private terraces and sea views from almost every room. The resort has the largest activity and dive centre on the island, so guests can enjoy not only the beauty and peacefulness of the resort, but also everything the island has to offer.

Catering to guests that feel the need to escape from their fast paced stressed life, the resort offers guests every opportunity to truly slow down and enjoy their island holiday on Koh Kood.

A combination of peaceful surroundings, and the numerous activities and adventures offered by the resort provide the perfect balance to a relaxing and fun vacation. There is no place better in Thailand to get away than Away Resorts.

Away Philosophy
The Away Resorts owners recognized that in this high speed life that we live in there is a desperate need to provide people an excuse and opportunity to truly slow down and appreciate life once more

Founded on the precepts that we largely live in an "Age of Rage", Away Resorts provides guests a renewed balance in life.

Developed on the philosophy of Slow, Away Resorts are designed to allow guests to enjoy their vacation at the right speed (tempo giusto).

In a society that is control by time, where time is money, Away allows guests to live life at the tempo it was meant to be, and enjoy the simpler things in life.

It is not a new religion, or strict doctrine, because they don't take themselves that seriously. It is more an interpretation of enjoying the simpler things in life and provide a break from the high velocity life we all tend to be trapped in.

Away Appeal
Resorts by Away and this resort in Koh Kood appeal to people who realize that their life are controlled by the clock, and that they need to get off the speedway of life and take a break. Over worked and over stressed Away guests need to "Get Away" from their normal routine and enjoy a vacation in paradise at an island tempo.

They don't need 24 hours room service, and they don't need marble clad, gold plated bathrooms to achieve it. What they need is a simply environment conducive to slowing down the pace of their life.

The philosophy and the positioning of the resorts may not even be obvious to some guests, and they are certainly not forced on anyone. It is more of a opportunity that can be taken or left as you please.

This appeals to guests that need to adjust on a gradual basis, as they wind down and slowdown during their stay. It appeals to people who recognize they need to find a better balance, without forging some of life's luxuries.
